Sefton buildings light up blue tonight for NHS Birthday

Sefton Council will light up a number of buildings blue this weekend to mark the 72nd anniversary of the formation of the National Health Service (NHS).

Both Bootle Town Hall and Crosby Library will be bathed in blue lights this evening of Sunday July 5 to celebrate the NHS and health workers both past and present. 

Sefton Council, while working hard with partners to ensure vulnerable residents are  protected from the spread of COVID-19, have also taken time to praise the vital work of the NHS and key workers, many of whom work for the Local Authority. 

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “Now more than ever is the time to show how indebted we all are to the National Health Service and say thank you the thousands of residents across our borough who work tirelessly as doctors, nurses, administrators, support workers and cleaners to keep our incredible health service running.

“We’re delighted that we are able to light up Crosby Library and Bootle Town Hall as just a small token of our massive appreciation for the NHS and we are continuing to do all we can to support our communities and make them as resilient as possible to keep pressure off health workers at this time.”
